A variety of services are available to you and your students here at the library. If you have any questions, call 847-455-6016 ext. 3, email kidscrossing@fppld.org or fax 847-455-6416.

Teacher Library Accounts

As a teacher who teaches in Franklin Park, you are entitled to your own Teacher Library Account. Your school must send the library a list of current teachers at the beginning of each school year. Then you only have to come to the library and show identification to register for your account. For your convenience, your library card will be kept at the Circulation Desk.

Assignment Alert

Notify us of upcoming student projects and homework assignments. We will set aside your requested materials and make them readily available for your students. We appreciate the advance notice.

Computers and Internet

Thirteen computers are available for your students to use. PCs run Microsoft Office 2007, which includes Power Point, Publisher, and Word. Black and white printouts are 10 cents a page and color printouts are 50 cents a page. Your students will need to bring their library cards to access the computers; nonresident students can be issued guest passes. The library also has two iPads loaded with games and educational apps.

Homework Center

Copies of the school textbooks for Districts #83 and #84 for grades 3-8 are housed in the Youth Services Department.

Library Visits

Your class is welcome to visit the library for an orientation and tour or to do research. We will structure the visit to meet the needs of your class. In order for us to meet your needs, it is important to arrange your visit at least two weeks in advance. As an alternative, we can visit your class for stories and book talks.

Your Teacher Account gives you access to our digital collection and a variety of online resources for both you and your students. See what we have to offer!
